* From the Du Quoin Evening Call

Jason Plummer (left), who says he has no interest in running for office again, is pictured at left with DuPage County auditor Bob Grogan in downtown Du Quoin during their visit on Thursday.

So, he’s moving into a kingmaker role?

Um, I don’t think Plummer will have much more success with Grogan than he did with his own campaigns. Just sayin’.

The photo…

  5. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:50 am:

    “Stick with me, Bob, and you’ll go places. By the way, it’s pronounced Du-quo-in!”

  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:50 am:

    An even better Christmas Card would be Plummer & “Two-Putt” on a Green at Medinah with Caddies holding a flag stick and yard signs for both…

    To the Caption.

    @FakeJasonPlummer - I’m gonna show Mr. Grogran around, kinda like college orientation and stuff. If Grogran is cool, gonna take him to a kegger. #JasonLovesFollowTheLeader

  8. - Ace - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:51 am:

    “Why is Dan Kotowski’s brother here?”- Plummer

  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:53 am:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Rallies are hard to organize. Next time I need to remember to spell check Bob’s name AND give the right address and time. #Oops

  10. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:54 am:

    “Say, ‘Here we come Tom Cross!’ …”

  11. - Small Town Liberal - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:55 am:

    Grogan? I thought I was meeting Grover. Dang it!

  12. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:56 am:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Dad says “be a Kingmaker”. Dad says confusing stuff all the time, Bob is running for Treasurer, right? #PoliticalTermsConfuseJason

  13. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:58 am:

    “We should get you a big banner with your name on it and highlight the word GROG in GROGan, because you know, pirates drank grog and pirates are sweet…”

  14. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:59 am:

    Bob Grogan, “Jason, I plan on paying you, and handling your consulting exactly as you handled Franny’s contract …”

  15. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:01 am:

    In the lumber biz, we call these “stick figures”

  16. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:02 am:

    Grogan - “I brought in Jason to be my ‘touchstone’, the common sense guy, who will lead this campaign aganst Tom Cross in the Primary, which will lead to victory in the General Election. Jason’s check to me cleared, and if Jason’s check clears in December, I see Jason staying on till that money runs out too.”

  17. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:03 am:

    DuQuoin ain’t gonna be enough. We’re gonna need DuPapermoney too.

  18. - Midstate Indy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:03 am:

    Dad, this guy looked over the books and said you CAN afford to fund my race for best-politician-ever again this time.

  19. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:04 am:

    Grogan - “What is really exciting, for me, is to visit all the southern border counties Jason toured when running for Lt. Governor. Going into all those out of the way places, no media, isolated townships and small towns, making sure to get no coverage, that is what I am really looking forward to…”

  20. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:05 am:

    I gotta feeling Willy ain’t gonna get much work done today with this contest going. Run these two together and you don’t have a ticket, you’ve got a thicket.

  21. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:05 am:

    “So Kingmaker isn’t the guy at the Home of the Whopper who hands out the little paper crowns at birthday parties? Who knew?”

  22. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:06 am:

    Grogan - “No, Jason is not here to run the whole campaign, ok …Jason is here to handle ‘Media and Message’, which are Jason’s strengths …”

  23. - Pot calling kettle - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:09 am:

    Jason Plummer is shown with his running mate as he announces his candidacy for Lt. Treasurer.

  24. - Midstate Indy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:15 am:

    Breaking Alert: Grogan visits Du Quoin to inspect suspicious happenings at the 11th Annual Plummer Family Monopoly Playoffs. Malfeasance on the part of ‘Jason the Banker’ has been accused. More to follow.

  25. - Anon. - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:16 am:

    This may cost us votes, but it is too bleeping hot for Carrhart jackets.

  26. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:16 am:

    - A guy…-,

    I just cleared my entire day, set up a Doctor’s appointment for Tuesday to ge new meds, since Plummer and “Two-Putt” are going to duke it out, and I still win, becuase, well, someone has to lose, and someone has to keep going till next November …

    Jason, “Ok, now after THIS picture … ice cream?”

  27. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:22 am:


    An Oswego Man today was hospitalized at Rush-Copley today with an apparent nervous disorder that his current meds were unable counter the twitching.

    With HIPPA rules, we are unable to disclose his name or age, but we disclose the picture above was found squeezed tightly in his hand as he mumbled ‘Two-Putt’…Plummer …’Two-Putt’ …Plummer’.

    After several attempts by family and friends, the Oswego man will stay at Rush-Copley for observation through the weekend, according to family sources”


    To the Caption,

    “Bob, Dad says he wants pictures to see if I am workin’ and stuff and not messin’ around like the last two campaigns HE had to pay for so…just stand in the middle of the road and smile.”

  28. - William j Kelly - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:26 am:

    The late mayor Daley used to say,” don’t march with no losers.” I am sure that also goes for pictures.

  29. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:27 am:

    To the anonymous patient at Rush Copley; We’re sending you flowers and our hopes for a speedy recovery. You’ll know they’re from us when you see one guy who’s 7′3 and another holding a seven iron looking for a ball under your bed. Oh yeah, you’re welcome.

    Debate preparation coach Jason Plummer lends his expertise to Bob Grogan’s candidacy for Illinois State Treasurer.

  31. - Carl Nyberg - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:31 am:

    Big on losing.

  32. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:31 am:

    “Oh Geez, take it again! No I didn’t blink, I forgot the ‘CPA’ yard sign for us to hold.”

  33. - zatoichi - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:33 am:

    Burt and Ernie practice their pose before the meet and greet crowd shows up.

  34. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:35 am:

    OK boys, now stand back to back. Take 10 paces and then shoot. In this case, there is no fear of casualties.

  35. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    For this trip to the DuQuoin Fair, Jason didn’t get paid money, or even in food or beverage; two words, ride tickets.

  36. - Raymond - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    Plummer: “You can’t tell from the picture, but I’m wearing my boots! That’s what the people do down here.”

  37. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:49 am:

    “Bob, its totally cool, totally … I know this person who can put people in the picture behind us, and maybe even some Power Rangers and everything … just take this picture and leave everything … up to me.”

  38. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:54 am:

    “Bob, I have alot of ‘pull’ down here. You havta understand, I ran two races, not one, two races down here, and I got votes. Lots. I mean, who can Tom Cross get to campaign with HIM? You lock up DuPage, I got like 39 counties down here … it’s like a lock or something cool like that.”

  39. - William j Kelly - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:57 am:

    Just one inspirational thought for the day, “No man is truly a loser unless he has all the family money in the world and still loses as a republican in downstate Illinois.”

  40. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 11:04 am:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Summer is over, Dad says either work at the bank and lumber yard or go back to school. Guess who found a 3rd Option? #KollegeWithoutHomeworkAndKoolRoadTrips

  41. - Cook - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 11:13 am:

    Bob, I like your idea of adding an extra R to your name, so you are even more Republican. From now on, I’m Jason Plrummer

  42. - yepperdo - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 11:19 am:

  45. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 11:49 am:

    Jason, “Oh geez, I thoght CPA meant ‘Can Play Anytime’ … so you’re busy sometimes …”

  46. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 11:51 am:

    G: You locked the keys in the car again, didn’t you?

    P: Heh, yeah. How are we gonna get the photographer out of there?

    He looks like Dan Kotowski.

  49. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:19 pm:

    Grogan, “I am pictured here with the best Political Operative i know … and Jason Plummer”

  50. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:22 pm:

    “Question Of the Picture”

    Who is going to be less relevent in April 2014?

    @FakeJasonPlummer - “Less Relevent”? I got tons of relevent. I got like cousins and aunts, uncles even! #JasonWinsAgain

  51. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:24 pm:

    “Well Bob, one thing is for sure when you take this picture with me. You will have one new fan, and I will have one old fan following us. You’re Welcome.”

  52. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:26 pm:

    @FakeTwoPuttCross - Dear @FakeJasonPlummer, thanks for taking that picture with “CPA”. Appreciate the Cover! #KeepOWBusyAndAwayFromTom

  53. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:38 pm:

  54. - Midstate Indy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:48 pm:

    So Bob, you pay somebody to iron your jeans too, right?

  55. - Midstate Indy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 12:51 pm:

    JP: Navy Intel keeps sending me these really long reports on relevance, or some big word like that.

    “Wait ’til you see what I have planned for your visit to the campus bars in Carbondale. To show the students you’re Kool, you can shotgun a beer outta this thing I just bought in the drugstore. It’s in my shirt pocket, see?”

  57. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 1:27 pm:

    “Bob Grogan, CPA is also a community volunteer.

    One of Bob’s passions is to take overly-privledged kids out, make them feel important, and babysit thses Genetic Lottery Winners with trips to State Fairs, and even letting them run Quixote Campaigns.

    Bob Grogan, giving back to the MORE fortunate …”

  58. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 2:39 pm:

    Plummer poses with Kotowski’s evil twin.

  59. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 3:12 pm:

    Jason, “So ‘What does the “CPA” stand for on the sign?’ Easy ‘See, Plummer approves!’…It doesn’t?”

  60. - anonymoose - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 3:30 pm:


    “See - Plummer Approves.” (chuckle)

    OW, your sense of humor knows no bounds. However, you are at least 20 to 30 posts low on the “Plummer Scale” today. You must be pre-occupied.

  61. - Chris Elliot - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 3:37 pm:

    Is this Bob’s campaign ad?

  62. - Javorica - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 3:40 pm:

    “Psst, kid, when do we get to the check part?”

  63. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 3:55 pm:

    Look, - Anonymoose -,

    I got this write-in campaign for Governor going on, the HGOP picked a new Leader today, and the Trib thinks Poe is a Democrat…AND… I may or may not be I’m a Rush-Copley hospital bed with double Plummer meds, ok… I got lots going on here at the hospital (allegedly)

    To the Caption,

    Plummer, “The only thing that can this team from winning is the voters…”

  64. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:05 pm:

    Plummer, “Bob, running is cool. If it doesen’t even work out, Dad gives you a promotion, a new pickup, and sometimes another house, so you know, it’s gonna be good and stuff.”

  65. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:06 pm:

    Plummer, “Dad! Just take the picture, not everything needs to go into my ‘Baby Book’…DAD! The Picture …Take it!”

  66. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:09 pm:

    Plummer, “Look, Bob, I like would watch Deb Detmers like … run … my campaign … and I got like a frown face … and I like can …call … people …and unlike the Lt. Governor race, I got make all the decisions the last month or so for Congress-stuff, so I can make good decisions. First, let’s take a picture before we go to the comic book store, you know, just to have for our wallets, like Buds do.”

  67. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:30 pm:

    @FakeJasonPluumer - Meet me and Bob Grogan at this random corner….please. #RunningToStandStill

  68. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:32 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Would it help if I said Bob Grogan shares the same…name as former Pats QB Steve Grogan? #FantasyFootballFantasyCampaign

  69. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:37 pm:

    Plummer, “Yeah, the ‘CPA’ thing on this signs was my idea, being a Naval Intelligence Officer, I know all about like letters standing for like full words. Like ‘CPA’, ok… ‘Come, Please, Anyone!’…’CPA’…campaigns are easy, actually when you run them.”

  70. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:44 pm:

    Bob Grogan lost ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors” to Tom Cross. This picture is the result.

  71. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:49 pm:

    “Don Kee-ho-Tee? I loved him in “The Godfather!” What a Kool movie. I never got to see it until Kollege because Dad said it had too many dirty words in it. Boy, was he right. Was it really about that guy from Springfield, though?”

  72. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:52 pm:

    Plummer, “Bob you’re a CPA, that’s cool. Being an Auditor, does that mean you control ALL audio in DuPage, like volumes to iPods and Cars on the street? Do you get to yell like whenever, and yell stuff…like, ‘I’m Bob the Auditor, I get to yell so back off! Audio! Audio!’, like that, as Auditor?”

  73. - anonymoose - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 4:54 pm:

    OW, you have infinite details socked away. While you are (or maybe are not) kicking back at Rush-Copley, if you can spare a sec, do you know if ARDC Mr. James Grogan and DuPage Mr. Bob Grogan (a/k/a Plummer BFF)are related?

  74. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 5:22 pm:

    - anonymoose -,

    I can NOT confirm either way, so I going to leave that for someone who can/will speak to it.

    I wish I was only half as smart as anyone thinks.

    To the Caption,

    Plummer, “Kingmaker? Yeah, Bob and I were playing Checkers waiting for people and Bob ‘Kinged’ me a bunch, I ‘Kinged’ him a bunch, the we only had ‘Kings’ left, then I lost, so Rich is right, I made a bunch of ‘Kings’ for Bob, so, to correct Rich I am a Kingmakers, plural, duh!”

  75. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 5:48 pm:

    “Bob, all I promised was I would get you coverage in Capitol Fax. You never asked how or why…”

  76. - ironman - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 6:33 pm:

    Remember, A lot of people within the party don’t like tom cross. especially down south. If Bob Grogan works hard, I think he will make many people proud. southern Illinois will vote Grogan.

  77. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 6:39 pm:

    While drumming up ticket sales for the dinner theatre revival of “Of Mice And Men”..

  78. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 9:58 pm:

  84. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:17 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Bob can’t afford a real poll so we are going to stand here on this corner and do our own polling. All we know now is that three people like Bob’s shirt #PrepPollingIsOverrated

  85. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 29, 13 @ 10:21 pm:
